EI issues invitation to tender on project S1502 ‘Guidance on control room alarm rationalisation’

March 23, 2015

The EI has issued an invitation to tender for a new project to produce guidance on how to conduct a human factors-oriented rationalisation of control room alarm systems.  This guidance aims to help companies bring the numbers of control room alarms down to a more manageable level (e.g. in order to meet EEMUA 201), to add in new alarms as the results of SIL/LOPA studies, and more generally to ensure that the alarms in place optimise operator situation awareness.

Consultants with experience in conducting control room alarm rationalisation/optimisation, and who are potentially interested in bidding for this project, are encouraged to contact Stuart King, Technical Products Manager, at e: sking@energyinst.org
